Can adrenal insufficiency cause lightheadedness and fatigue?

Can adrenal insufficiency cause lightheadedness and fatigue?

Yes: However, there are many other causes of these symptoms so you would need testing to find out if it is your adrenals. 'adrenal fatigue' is not generally recognized by mainstream medicine and, I believe, is a real condition that unlike addison's disease, is not life threatening but can cause symptoms that can be very distressing. You would need to see an integrative or naturopathic physician.

Can adrenal fatigue cause constant lightheadedness?

Can adrenal fatigue cause constant lightheadedness?

It can but: In your age group, it is more likely to be anemia, low blood pressure, or low blood sugar. Try eating more often, avoiding sweets which can make your sugar drop. Try to drink enough fluids to keep your urine a pale yellow color (if its clear, that's too dilute, drink less) and try to get more protein in your diet. If not better with that in a week or two, see your doctor.

Many possible: Causes. You didn't mention how long this fatigue has been present. If it's been weeks to months, it's time to get checked out by an Internist. A thorough history, physical exam, and lab studies will be needed, for a diagnosis.

What causes extreme fatigue/exhaustion for over 1 month, lightheadedness, low grade fevers, numbness in extremities, blurry Vision, skin hot 2 touch?

Fatigue: The symptoms may be suggestive of wide variety of illnesses including: subacute infection such as endocarditis, endocrine problems such as hyper- or hypothyroidism, occult malignancy such as lymphoma or even emotional stress, anxiety or depression. Obviously this requires further investigation by doing thorough physical examination and blood work analysis which will guide further work up.

Frequent dizziness, lightheadedness, headaches, confusion and fatigue for 4 months. Occurs in the evenings. Normal brain mri, and other tests. Causes?

Neurologic symptoms: Its not possible to give you a meaningful response. Are you 16 or 96? were you perfectly healthy or had many different medical and psychiatric conditions 4 months ago? You have had a medical work up and we don't know the results of the other tests like blood tests. I cant think of a condition that would just appear in the evenings. It may have to do where you are at that time not the time itself.

Dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, eyes twich acasionally cause me to loose focus, mind insomnia, fatigue...What could be causing this?

Anxiety: Dizziness can be difficult to evaluate, vertigo is where to room is spinning, being light headed is different and usually transient. Some medical issues include anemia or thyroid problems. If you are not sleeping and having anxiety, everything is worse; do you clinch your teeth at night? If so its bruxism; panic attacks? Sertraline at 50mg, with some anxiety+sleep, Clonazepam 1mg can make big dif.

Can hyperthyroidism cause vomiting and fatigue? Been vomiting for weeks and docs can't find anything and I have doc app to check thyroid tomorrow.

Thyroid vomiting: If you have hyperthyroidism why hasn't any one taken care of that! If your doctor (s) have not yet taken good care of your hyperthyroidism you should make an appointment with an Endocrinologist as soon as possible. If the "docs" can't find anything, have your friends refer you to a better set of doctors! Please let me know how you get on.
